We can’t be with our children at all times, but we can learn ways to help keep them safe when we’re not thereAs an employee, volunteer or parent, we are the primary protector of our children. Their safety is up to us. As a Church, we are committed to helping you fulfill this tremendous responsibility.  

All employees and those volunteers who have unsupervised, ongoing access to minors or vulnerable adults are required to attend. This 3 hour program will teach you how to help prevent child sexual abuse. Protecting God’s Children was written and developed by Virtus a program developed by the National Catholic Risk Retention Group.


You’ll learn:

  *Facts and myths about child sexual abuse

  *How offenders gain access to children

  *Warning signs to look for in children, or adults
  *Actions to take when you notice warning signs
